This trip was one of the most memorable in my five years of living in Europe and such a wonderfully pleasant surprise. It almost brought me to euphoric tears seeing Black people walk through this European city proclaiming the truth: we belong here. The blood of our ancestors taint these cobblestones. Our bones bent to build this city that you now call home and you need to – read: better—recognize this fact. So yes, our hair will fly free. Yes, we will dress how we please whether that be in African or Caribbean garb or with piercings & tattoos or traditionally French. We are home.
Spain is a dream world with some of the best that Europe has to offer. From its stunning architecture, unforgettable cuisine and welcoming culture to the diverse regions of the country, both mountainous and beachside, a Spanish experience is something you will always remember. Living in Spain and having traveled all over the country, you really get to enjoy some of the best authentic experiences that there are. In celebration of the launch of Las Morenas de España travel experiences, I’m sharing an insiders guide to an authentic Spain for you to enjoy.
